After researching quire deeply into different laptops to ensure I bought the right one, a friend of mine showed me the details of Toshiba Satellite Pro 4320.
It seemed to tick all the boxes for everything I need to do, both at home and at work. (I am a healthcare trainer so I need to connect a projector with a large amount of information on and need it to be pretty fast to be able to flick through professionally.
My review? - It does what it says on the tin!
It holds a massive amount of memory, colours are clear and as I use a lot of pictures that came in very well.
The multimedia experience is so much better than earlier models.
I generally carry a lot of equipment around and this being small and compact does the job and looks very professional.
The only downfall would be the battery life and it does not seem to be able to hold its power for any longer that 1 1/2 hours - that may well be because it is cob=nstantly in use, but I would like to see something on the market for about 4 - 5 hours.
At work, much to my luck I have recently been using a Toshiba Satellite Pro 4320, at first I was slightly apprehensive as I always am about new things and changes however I was very pleasantly surprised...
The 'machine' is extremely accessible to people of all ages and abilities and is also extremely simple in a helpful way, the product at a first glance looks top of the range and trendy so to speak, however it's simple layout with everything clearly indicated makes it amazingly easy to begin...trust me I am certainly no computer expert!
The advantage however that I would definitely draw upon is the fact that it would still in my opinion suit the most advanced on computers/laptops, as it is so modern and advanced at your own choice.
Mainly I would say that this is an ideal laptop for people on the move, as Its powered by a mobile Intel Celeron M360 processor and features 802.11bg wireless connectivity. It also packs in a 60GB hard drive and 512MB RAM. This gives a brief idea of the products capability however as I said earlier I am no expert and I would purely like to express my positive experiences with others that may be thinking of buying a laptop.
There are a number of reasons as to why I have found my laptop particularly pleasing; these are more so personal practical reasons than technical ones!
Firstly as I mentioned the laptop is extremely easy to access even by the computer illiterate, the instruction manual was particularly perceive and easy-to-follow. The keys are also very easy to clean, this was a point that I used to find incredibly frustrating on my old laptop. Considering the compact design the laptop has a large screen as I have found that it has an incredibly narrow trim. There are several factors such as these that have genuinely pleased me about this latest model and overall if I were sent to purchase a model I would certainly consider this one seriously as it comes with a huge specification; as an example,
*Battery life: Up to 1:50 hours
*Built-in Ethernet connection: 10/100
*CD / DVD optical drive: DVD Spermatic Drive (dual layer) *
*Dimensions: H36 x W331 x D278mm
*Fire Wire / IEEE 1394 ports: No
*Graphics card: ATI Radeon® Xpress 200M
*Graphics card - video RAM: 256MB
*Guarantee: 2 years, to extend to 5 years £209 - click here
*Hard drive: 60GB
*Memory card slot: No
*Model name / number: 4320
All of this comes at an extremely competitive price of £549.00, for assistance the best place that I can probably offer is John Lewis as they offer the model at this price, inc free p+p.
